The Old Laundry description

Holiday home
The Old Laundry is an outstanding, ground floor, semi-detached courtyard cottage in the desirable hamlet of Clappersgate, just one mile from Ambleside in the heart of the Lakes and can sleep four people. There are two double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms and an open plan living area with kitchen, breakfast bar and sitting area with a gas fire. Outside there is off road parking for one car and a shared, lawned garden with furniture located across the main road. The Old Laundry is a wonderful holiday base.

Given its excellent position at the northern tip of Lake Windermere - England's largest lake - Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes. The town itself is famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th Century 'Bridge House' - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Gas central heating and gas fire. Electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, wine cooler, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV with FreeSat, DVD, WiFi. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 2 cars. Shared, lawned garden with furniture located across main road. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 1 mile. Note: Cottage is located near a well-used road so care should be taken and some road noise may be heard in garden. Note: The access to the river is through a small wicket gate and the garden is approached via 20 steps. Note: No infants allowed. Note: Beds are accessed from one side only.

The property is absolutely perfect. Every detail is of a very high standard indeed. Lots of nice touches to make your stay easy, comfortable and relaxing. The property is well placed in the Lakes and we will definitely be returning.

Fabluous holiday cottage to which we WILL go back to again and again. The cottage was incredibly clean, well stocked and the towels (so soft, fluffy) and bedding were all new. The furnishings and floors were in great condition. The location couldn't have been better -- easy walk into Ambleside or Waterhead (for the ferry) and the bus stop is right outside. It was a beautiful location from which to set out on a morning run or bike ride in addition to walks anywhere. There were even roman ruins right across the way. Moreover, the owner was so kind to work with. Highly recommend staying in this cottage if you are looking for a place in or around Ambleside.

The property was fantastic. It is located in a great location with easy access to attractions. The flat itself was great all that we needed and more. It was very clean and tidy. The appliances and kitchen wear was of a very high standard and finishing throughout the property was again to a high standard.
